SMC Pentax 50mm F4 Macro

I did not see a thread for this lens, so I thought I would start one. If this is a duplicate thread, moderator please delete or move as necessary. Enjoy! (First image is of the lens itself and was taken with the HD DA40)

Wow! I love the rendering of that lens. Great bokeh. It looks like I will have to get one for myself. :-) Very nice images, BTW. You have a good eye for closeups.

Thanks for the kind words.

It is a very good lens. The bokeh is very nice and the lens is razor sharp. I shoot wide open at f4 a lot of times and in AV mode so I don't have to green button meter. It works great that way as a walk around lens. No hood required as the front element is deeply recessed. I see them on e-bay occasionally and sometimes here on the marketplace. I think the K series is a little more rare than the Pentax-m. I love the build of the K series. I think the build is as good or better than my DA limited 21 and 40, just all manual if you're into it.

The macro as a normal lens

Added some shots using the 50mm macro as a normal lens. All shot wide open at f4 and letting the camera do the metering in AV mode. More posted in flickr album SMC Pentax Macro 1:4/50 | Flickr
